Prep highlights: Evergreen baseball makes early lead stand against Prairie


Evergreen baseball struck early then held on late to earn a 5-4 win over Prairie in a Class 3A Greater St. Helens League game on Thursday.

Cole Robinson’s two-out double drove in Cole Cuypers for the first of four runs Evergreen scored in the first inning. The Plainsmen also scored on a wild pitch, an error and a fielders choice.

Cuypers extended Evergreen’s lead to 5-0 in the second when he doubled then scored on a passed ball.

But Prairie wouldn’t fold. Colby Majewski blasted a three-run home run to key a four-run fourth inning.

Trevin Livingston earned a save for Evergreen, pitching two scoreless innings. He struck out four and allowed one hit and no walks.

Evergreen improved to 3-3 overall and took two of three games against Prairie in a series that opened league play for both teams.
